EU CV Template

The Euro CV template was introduced in order to come up with a standard way of putting down one’s qualifications and skills in a way that would be understood all over Europe. The EU curriculum vitae template was introduced in 2002 to help job seekers and employers understand what each has to offer, even when applying for jobs across countries. The EU CV format also helps in overcoming the language barrier.
